Replacing the keyboard on a MacBook unibody?

Apple MacBook "Core 2 Duo" 2.26 13" (Uni/Late 09) Specs

Identifiers: Late 2009 - MC207LL/A - MacBook6,1 - A1342 - 2350*

I repair PC laptops and now and then I do work on Mac laptops. I have a Macbook unibody 13 inch which needs a keyboard. I ordered one (without the palmrest) thinking it is a quick and easy job (not so) just like a PC laptop. Well I got the Mac disassembled to gain access to the bottom side of the plamrest and found that s black panel has to be removed to get to the keyboard. I removed four screws to the black panel and not able to lift it off the palmrest. It seems to be glued to the palmrest (hot glue?).

Here's the part you need: MacBook Unibody (A1342) Upper Case

Here's how it's replaced: MacBook Unibody Model A1342 Upper Case Replacement

These top cases can be ordered out of China for much better pricing but it takes about 16 days. I keep a couple in stock just because there is such a big price difference.
